Yes.. this issue is so old. But it hasn't been fixed yet.

I often play in the QMB and it really bugged me in one of these 'fights' that I just have, in which AI Spit killed my pilot and then break off, like he knows that I am killed and that I will crash.. it quite unrealistic (well maybe i believe that he saw me killed if we have high gore enabled; that way he can see the tomato juice on the canopy glass http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

Bottom line is: AI knows how to save ammo in this case http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

well if you see your target stop taking evasive action what do you think? its possible to see when you've killed the pilot most of the time in my experience

Uh.. remind me to fly straight in dogfight with you when you get on my 6 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif . Also, you may try flying straight vs. AI, they will shot you down instantly; and when you get killed they instantly break off, no matter if your a/c receives minor damage, and is still combat ready.

In all my online playing I have never see that one player is stop shooting at enemy a/c before he deals him serious damage (saw off wing, engine on fire etc..).

The AI's are psychic. They can see your spirit rise out of the cockpit when you die.

The AI Cheat, they Know where you are at all times, they can see through clouds, have perfect coordination with their wingmen, Have Legolas the elf for a tail gunner, and can perform any manuoevre with the rudder only!

That is one annoyance, I`ll admit. It`s fair enough if they chase down a smoker cos the pilot hasn`t bail, but knowing when to break off INSTANTLY the pilot (AI or Human) is dead is very unrealistic.

Offline, I`ve often been able to tell if a fighter AI pilot is dead cos all the other AI pilot`s will instantly disengage.

I am sure this can be easily corrected with a few appeals to Oleg, but he`s probably drowned in other requests - no harm posting in ORR about it though...

I've actually had the AI keep firing at me long after I've died on several occasions. I'll try to save a track next time it happens if you like, but it happened as recently as today. I set up a QMB with me and 3 other Corsairs up against 4 Betty Bombers and 3 A6M5's over Okinawa. After a few passes, BAM!, Betty puts a round right betwixt my eyes. Nevertheless, the remaining bombers continued to fire at my aircraft as I plummeted towards the water, and a Zero also latched onto my six and sprayed some MG rounds into my tail, only pulling off when he saw I was about to crash.

what??? im not saying fly straight im saying when the pilot is dead the plane no longer exhibits any intelligence, it stops changing direction, and usually is smoking and heading for the deck, thats a pretty good indication its done for. Wait i think i get what you're saying try flying straight to try and fool someone, and indeed that would not fool them, but if they stop maneuvering as the result of a burst of fire from your guns then its a good indicator wouldn't you say?

In an effort to conserve ammo, I will stop shooting if they change profile suddenly, like you got a PK. But I will keep them in my forward hemisphere in case it was a ploy. And I have seen ploys attempted.
